18 months of my globetrotting journey was spent in Asia with my home base in Ulsan, South Korea. Living in Asia as an allergen-free foodie was challenging at best. I promised myself the first six months I would let loose and immerse myself into the cuisine. Little did I know, it would be incredibly difficult to lead a “Heidi Friendly” lifestyle while in South Korea.
Despite the lack of “Heidi Friendly” allergen-free food options, I wanted to share some of the things I came across during my time living in South Korea. These aren’t exclusive to just Ulsan but also Daegu, Seoul, Jeju, Gyeongju and various other places throughout South Korea.
If you’ve been wondering what food in South Korea looks like, strap on your seatbelt and enjoy the ride of this blog post, Part I. You’re going to see a mix of traditional Korean homemade food, American-style foods, desserts (of, course) and a variety of Korean BBQ places.
